It's Time to Elevate

Updated: Jan 29



Often people seek God for a word to focus on for the year ahead. However, recently God placed a word in my spirit for the season of life that we are now in.  

 

The word God gave me was ‘ELEVATE’.

 

As we press into a new season, I hope you find my thoughts, based upon each letter of the word ‘ELEVATE’, an encouragement for the all that lies ahead!

  

E - Expect More

 

So often our expectations are limited by the negativities and barriers that surround us. In the midst of life, we cannot see what God is doing because of the circumstances that engulf us.

 

In this season let’s allow God to elevate every area of our lives. As we do, we will be able to see much more of the good future God has for us and as a result, we will come to expect so much more ... because know there is so much more.

 

L - Look to God, Not Man

 

In the past, we may have expected that men, even men of God, would meet the needs of the dream that God placed within our hearts. This may well have led to times of disappointment and discouragement.

 

In these days, God is calling us to look to him alone. In Him, there is no disappointment or discouragement. He will even cause the wealth of the wicked to be redirected so that His purposes can come to pass.

 

E - Escalate Preparations

 

Now is not the time to sit back and wait. Now is the time to prepare. Now is time to do all you know to do.

 

A season of acceleration is coming. A season of God’s grace and favour like we have not yet seen. God is calling us to be ready to step into all that he is about to do.

 

Do not be caught out unprepared.

Be ready!

 

V - Value Kingdom Partnerships

 

I heard it said often that ‘there are no lone rangers in the kingdom of God’.

 

The truth is, too many of us try to go it alone and as a result, don’t go as far as we could.

 

God is going to bring his people into new Kingdom partnerships in this season that will cause His Kingdom to come in greater measure, in more places and in more ways than we ever seem before.

 

Seek God's wisdom and partner with those who are seeking to see His kingdom come.

 

A - Advance, Every Day

 

Every day is important. Every day is filled with opportunities to advance. No day is to be wasted.

 

Now, like never before, I believe God is calling us to advance. Opposition will come, but it is through opposition that we have an opportunity to prove God’s faithfulness and see His victory released in our families, communities, cities and nations.

 

Let’s be determined to advance every day.


T - Transformed Thinking, Transforms Nations 

 

Like a filter on a motor, our minds can become polluted by the dirt and grime that passes through it. Polluted filters block up motors and stop then moving.

 

So too, it’s time to remove the pollution that clogged up our minds. It’s time to remove the pollution caused by the world, the pollution caused by fear, the pollution caused by negativity and the pollution caused by faithless religion.

 

Let’s determine to transform our minds and in return, we will see nations transformed.

 

E - Embrace All That God Is Doing

 

Throughout history, God has been at work. His ways change but his purposes remain the same; to see the world transformed by his love and restored to its original Kingdom design.

 

I believe God is about to move in ways we have not yet seen. He will work in ways that will surprise us. We need to embrace all that He is doing. Our traditions and cultures should not be allowed to hold us back any longer.

 

God is on the move and He invites us to join Him.

 

It’s time to:

  • Elevate our thoughts

  • Elevate our words

  • Elevate our actions
